Powerlifting and Olympic lifting is the best for MA and most sports.

Powerlifting - You gain strength without gaining a lot of mass, which is the opposite of bodybuilding where they gain mass and a little strength.

Olympic Lifting - Speed strength, otherwise known as explosiveness.

For training articles, go to drsquat.com and bodybuilding.com (has a lot of articles on Olympic lifting, powerlifting, and bodybuilding).
 
body builders do get alot of strength but not as much power as power lifters cause they get slower, although i used to be a bodybuilder and i'm 250lbs but i am flexible and faster than almost anyone i know but thats cause i train very hard and i have begun lifting weights faster and i punch with 10kg weights to increase punching speed.

anyway; when you lift, lift fast but not too fast about a 1 count up and 2 down then after you have done about 3 sets of 4-8 do two more sets with lighter weights and move them real fastbut dont tryit with big weights or your back.

it is very important to train speed as much as you weight train, the extra strength from weight lifting can improve your speed but you need to train it to be fast
 
Once a week:

- 20 rep squats
- Super Slow Dips
- Super Slow Pull downs
 
In Okinawan karate [naha-te tradution mostly], we have hojo-undo, supplementary training which consists of lifting different weights and manipulating them. We also have tools we 'hit' too build up a sense of penetration and impact.

The most common tools are; Makiwara, chi-ishi, gami, tan, kongoken, ishi-sashi, kakite-bikei, tou and the ude-kite.

There are many others besides these. A search on yahoo should pull up a few pages on this subject if you're interested? and let you see the tools mentioned.

Regards,
Mike.
 
Mike thats true most Goju dojo have a lot of neat stuff to lift. I saw a photo of my teachers dojo back in the 1960s and there was a lot of stuff like you mentioned.
It is one of the many differences between Okinawan Karate and Tokyo Karate..most dojo dont have weight training tools.

I just started teaching on Camp Zama and as Yiliquan 1 can tell you they have a weight room that most professional American football teams would be jealous of.........and I love it!
 
Are U kidding Me.

What about Ken Shamrock,Mark Colman,Mark Kerr
Kevin Randalman.

All These Guy's do Body Building,Martial Arts---MMA/NHB
 
bodybuilders do have strength ut the often lack speed however if they train properly they actually have the tools to be faster than other people the only problem is that lo0ts of them train moving weights slowly but they need to supplement this with fast reps with a much small weight then they can become fast and strong (powerful)
 
I put up another couple of work out routines in the health section if anyone is interested in talking about it.

Ken Shamrock technically doesn't do bodybuilding at all.

He powerbuils, meaning his goal is a hybrid of strength and mass.

And none of the above train like a bodybuilder nor eat like a bodybuilder. They are athletes, bodybuilders are a different type of athlete where they aren't judged on performance (not unless you take posing as performance). Posing takes grace, but bodybuilders are the weakest and most exhuasted on competition day.

The average bench press of a IFBB professional bodybuilder is 450 pounds. The average benchpress of a professional deadlifter is 600.
 
Squat Average for pro powerlifters: 900-1000+
Squat Average for IFBB bodybuilders: 700

Deadlift Average for pro powerlifters: 900+
Deadlift Average for IFBB bodybuilders: 650
 
Taken From 1on1 With Mark Colmen
I Eat Like a Body Builder up to 6 Times a Day
I eat up to 5,000 Calories Per Day.

On Body Building
I try to do it Fast & Heavy. I don't Waste Much Time
Between sets. I concentrate on My Body Building
& Try & Be Dead Tierd at the End.
The Excersises are Body Building 101,BenchPress,Squat
Dead Lift Barebell curl, dumb bell press.\
I Look For Strenth & Power so i don't waste my time with
isolation movements.

So they do bodybuild.

However, it is not the bodybuilding in its true form.

Bodybuilders take in over 8000 calories, don't clean, and none of them do isolation movements.

However, what Coleman is doing by removing rest periods is just slowing down his gains.

Ken Shamrock seems more like the bodybuilder type, but his training program is optimized for mass, not for strength.
 
Bench Press, Deadlifts and Squats are the competition lifts for Powerlifting.
Obviously they are also included in bobybuilding.The difference is the weight/rep scheme that is used, and wether they are the focus of training or mearly a part of it - no more or less important that other lifts that are used.
It is interesting to note that Coleman says specifically that he does no isolation movements. Bodybuilders use many isolation movement in their routines, whilst powerlifters concentrate on the 3 competition lifts plus compound assistance movements. The line between Powerlifting and Bodybuilding have been skewed since Dorian Yates dominated Mr. Olympia competition using a modified Powerlifting routine.
Basically one has to look at the results that are trying to be attained to determine which category you fit into. If you are lifting to gain size, get ripped and look "buff" you're a bodybuilder. If you're only concern is gaining low rep (even single rep) strength then you're a Powerlifter.
 
As was posted by others That
1 they were not & to Bodybuilders have no strenth.
 
I wasn't directing my post at you Ace, merely stating the difference between the to forms of lifting.
Anyone who lifts weight with intensity and dedication will become stronger. Martial Artist is correct in stating that Powerlifters are in general much stronger than bodybuilders. I think you yourself Ace stated that Shamrock used 225-240 lb. for benches for 5-10 reps. This seems way to light for a man 200+ lb. of solid muscle, but whatever. A powerlifter of his size will be a couple hundred pounds over that weight.
In reality the discussion is pointless, as we are talking about people (ourselves included) who are using weight training to benefit our MA. Lifting is a tool used toward another purpose, not and end unto itself as is the case with true bodybuilders/powerlifters.
For the last 1 1/2 yrs I have scaled back my weight lifting to basics-benches, deadlifts,leg press,ect., and have been focusing on grip/wrist/forearm training. I have never had a body part respond as quickly or consistently as these areas have. Does anyone else devote time to this kind of endeavor?
 
whether you do powerlifting or body building learn to do it fast with lighter weights as well as i and heavy

Bodybuilders are stronger than people who don't lift. But they can't even compare with powerlifters in strength.

Bodybuilders are stronger than the average man
They are weaker than powerlifters
They are bigger than powerlifters

Powerlifters are stronger than bodybuilders
Powerlifters are bigger than the normal man
